Trace-A-Punch® Duplicating Nibblers

This is the easiest, most economical way to produce low production metal and plastic profiles. Trace-A-Punch® follows your guided template to produce burr free straight and contoured outlines and holes. Simple, rugged, meehanite casting construction insures very little maintenance.

An existing part can be used as the master pattern or one can easily be made by tracing over acetate-plastic .020-1/2″ with a sharp scriber or razor knife. An office copier can be used to produce a master by copying on to Mylar-plastic and cutting with scissors. We offer the Trace-A-Punch in 3 sizes:
